    Most likely no but they will keep their playback capability a lot longer. Gold is a better conductor than a lot of other materials so it us used in higher end cable connectors to keep cleaner contact but that is of little use in salty air environments where everything corrodes quickly. Apparently the long term reflective capability is enhanced with gold CD's. I think CD's are going to disappear just like vinyl and tape since digital transfer is quite simple and you also don't get 11 lousy tracks to go along with the one you wanted in the first place.

    I have a couple of "gold" CDs and aside from their looking cool I have not noticed any difference in sound quality when compared to a "regular" CD.
